What you need to know:

  • Mumias was put under receivership by Kenya Commercial Bank on September 20, 2019.
  • Today, the only operational section of the factory is the ethanol distillery.

Is Mumias Sugar Company likely to resume full operations soon? I don’t think so. If anything, I see the company facing the same fate as PanPaper, which is yet to resume full operations more than five years after it came out of receivership.
